U.S. middle-class incomes reached highest-ever level in 2016, Census Bureau says
What a joke. Though nominally the article looks correct. When fact checked to reality & inflation is calculated, the median income would have to be around $86,000 to be equal to the median income in 1999 of $58,000.
If people were being paid in gold, the median income in 1999 was just over 202 oz of gold. Today that 202 ounces would be worth over $292,000
